Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Here are a few tips for vases
* to remove grime from the bottom of a glass vase, fill it with water and drop an alka seltzer or efferdent tablet in it. Let sit for 10 minutes, then rinse.
* To fix a crack in a painted ceramic vase, find a crayon that matches the color of the vase, light the tip of the crayon and let the melted wax drip into the crack. When cool-scrap away the excess.
* to remove hard water stains from the inside of a crystal vase, fill the vase with white vinegar and let sit for 30 minutes. Rinse clean. The acetic acid dissolves lime deposits.
